Night At The Barracks is back for a 2023 season, and it's bigger than ever, with nine nights of packed entertainment through September and October. 

Set to kick off on September 15th in North Head, Manley, Sydneysiders will be treated to shows from the Hoodoo Gurus, Missy Higgins, Kate Ceberano with the Metropolitan Orchestra, the Tom Burlinson Big Band performing Sinatra and the Kings of Swing, Rolling Stones Revue featuring Adalita, Tex Perkins, Tim Rogers, Bjorn Again, James Morrison’s Motown Experience, a debut Sydney performance of History Of House featuring Groove Terminator & Soweto Gospel Choir, and concluding with the iconic Tina Arena with a Sydney exclusive show.

Kate Ceberano, whose new album My Life is a Symphony has just debuted at #6 on the ARIA Albums Chart, is enthusiastic to be part of the Nights at the Barracks lineup this year, saying, “Wow, what a lineup – I am so excited to be part of the team this year!  Last year when I saw the amazing artists and the location, and how they stage the shows, I wanted to know why I wasn’t a part of it!  I wanted to be there so badly! So this year, I’m thrilled to play at the Barracks with The Metropolitan Orchestra, we are going to put on one extraordinary show, I can guarantee it!”

Partnering with a range of sustainable companies, Night At The Barracks are hoping to recreate the level of sustainable success that they had last year, which in turn won them the award for Northern Beaches Event of the Year. Therefore, working with iconic electric car brand Polestar for the second year in a row made complete sense alongside returning partners Northern Beaches Council, Cunard, Gage Roads, Manly Spirits and new partners, Engie and Tempus Two. 

Northern Beaches Mayor Sue Heins says, “We’re so thrilled to have this sustainable event return to the area. It is a great drawcard to support local businesses and the entertainment industry while our community and visitors will enjoy performances by singing royalty with a picture-perfect backdrop – it’s the perfect night out.”
